Muon Ionization Cooling Demonstration by Normalized Transverse Emittance Reduction in MICE 'Flip Mode'
January 31, 2021
Low emittance muon beams are central to the development of a Muon
Collider and can significantly enhance the performance of a Neutrino Factory. The international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) was designed to demonstrate and
study the cooling of muon beams. Several million individual muon tracks have been recorded passing through
a liquid hydrogen or a lithium hydride absorber. Beam sampling routines were employed to account for
imperfections in beam matching at the entrance into the cooling channel and enable an improvement of the
cooling performance measurement. A study of the change in normalized transverse emittance in a flipped polarity magnetic
field configuration is presented in this paper and the characteristics of the cooling effect are discussed.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
